Great, as always. Noise level is high, though. Challenging for a round table of boomers. (Was better after some loud fellow patrons left, but is an issue.)
Great atmosphere and location! Coffee was good and food was pretty good! Service was ok
Our trip to Imperial was a mixed bag. We were told a large group had gotten in before us and caused the long delay. My wife had the pork chop, which was very bland. I order the short rib special, which would have been wonderful, but came out cold. The brussel sprouts were over cooked and had a slight burnt taste to them. Overall, you could tell under optimum circumstances our meal could have been good (other than my wife’s pork chop). All might have been caused by a weekend rush on restaurant week. Our server was professional and unsolicited sympathetic – he deserved high marks. We were not in any sort of rush because we were with good company, which was a good thing.
We had the flank steak and it was AMAZING!
Fantastic service and delicious food. Really was a great date night thanks to everyone at Imperial!
Our dinner was fantastic. We were offered seats at the chefs counter overlooking the wood fire grill, which was a fun experience. The chef was interactive throughout our meal, the food and drinks were spectacular. We will be back!
My mom and I went here for brunch. We like to ramble around Portland and try out different spots and we had originally written off Imperial because we thought the menu was too plain. OMG WE WERE SOOO WRONG! The items they had on the menu were simple with a twist. I had the best fried chicken of my life here. So moist on the inside but crispy on the outside. I brought my leftovers to my boyfriend who ate it 2 hours after we got home which was actually about 4 to 5 hours later and he said it was still just as crispy. Don’t know how they did it but bravo. The only bad thing was we said we wanted boxes for our food and our waitress somehow thought we wanted our food thrown out so she tossed it but she was nice enough to make us another meal on the house to compensate.
Horrible service / great food. Would not come back solely based on how all the staff treated our group.
Razor clam linguini - crazy good! And Timothy was a great ssrver!
Imperial had great food selection. The services was great, we left our orders to our waitress and she delivered!
Excellent meal; we miss the coal-roasted sweet potato, but plenty of other options. Short rib and risotto were excellent. Good GF and V options. Only note is that items from the big fire tend to arrive warm rather than hot, possibly because they’re waiting on rest of order? Still an excellent meal.
DON’T waste your money here. We enjoyed our steak dinner last year so brought friends with us this time. I’m tired of being escorted past several empty tables( at least 20) to the back of the restaurant near the kitchen. Guess my color?
The Delmonico steak at $52 was TOUGH and DRY. The Brussels Sprouts were burnt. Portions laughable. We did like duck meatballs which cost $6 each!
The restaurant began to fill up and the only other party of Black folks were seated in the rear at the table we refused.
Never going back.
The waitress was informative but did not check on us during the meal. No pleasantries as we left.
Everything from the cocktails to the dessert was fabulous. Elk tartare is a must-have, as was the duck breast. Creamed kale was outstanding as well. A very nice dining experience that isn't too over the top.
Burger was good but our salmon and razor clam linguine was small and disappointing for the cost. Clams did not taste fresh. Suggest ordering the burgers and fried chicken.
Very good brunch. Food was excellent. They serve one of my favorite teas and my friend felt that the coffee was excellent. You pay a bit more for the name, but the food was good.
Exceeded expectations on every front.
Great place for an affordable romantic date night
Absolutely the best!! We have been many times and many occasions. The service is always outstanding
The food and service were great, but the combination of an open kitchen, ambient dinner noises plus fairly loud piped-in music made it very difficult to talk to each other.
Pretty loud, not good for a meal where you want to have a conversation. Food was okay a little pricey for basic fair, about on par with Downtown though.
Me la pas de maravilla, la cena verdaderamente riquísima.
Fried chicken was burnt, risotto was soupy, and salmon was chewy. Worst experience we’ve had at Imperial.
